Oviedo to Winter Springs: Take a Bike

Another weekend…another bike ride on a new trail. This time we picked up the Cross Seminole Trail behind the First Baptist Church in downtown Oviedo, and I’m pleased to say it met the criteria for a first-class trail.

We even encountered a few surprises on our ride to Winter Springs. A bike repair station…

A crew filming…

And many flowers along the trail…

We only rode five miles of the twenty-three mile trail (ten miles round trip), but if the remainder of the trail is anything like the portion we rode, this could become a favorite.

And since the trail meets the Cady Way Trail in Winter Park and the Seminole Wekiva Trail in Lake Mary, there’s plenty more riding to do in the Orlando area.
